Did you know that , according to the WWF, people could actually be ingesting approximately 5 grams of microplastics every week? In other words, the equivalent to a credit card.
It is important to keep in mind that a plastic bag takes 20 years to decompose, plastic straws 250 years and a disposable cup 450 years. There is nothing to ignore: we already eat plastic.
With the intention of making tourists aware of the necessary steps to minimize their plastic footprint and the need to reduce single-use plastic when on holidays a, we make a few suggestions:
Use ecobags and reusable bottles;
- Buy in bulk;
- Use solid shampoo;
- Carry a kit of cutlery made of sustainable material;
- Buy local art instead of plastic souvenirs;
- Rent equipment, such as pool equipment.
Unfortunately we cannot expect to change the whole world, but we have the ability not to make it worse. If you want to realize the real impact of plastic, stay tunned! We will share a strong testimony from a journalist, regarding the violent scourge of plastic she witnessed up close.
Keep (our world) safe 💮
